chicken-corn-blue cheese salad

Okay, so that's kind of a lame name for a salad but who cares? I'm just focused on the yum factor.

Most of the recipes I share are ones I either found online or in a magazine or from a friend. I don't consider myself original in the kitchen by any means. That's not where I am creative. But I saw this concept somewhere and David & I improvised and changed things up a bit. I guess that makes this recipe our own little creation.


[ dressing ]

2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp. honey
salt & pepper

[ salad ]

6-8 c. loosely packed baby mixed greens
2 large tomatoes, sliced into wedges
2 c. shredded pieces from a rotisserie chicken (pick it up at the store already cooked)
1 c. sweet corn, thawed if frozen
1/3 c. crumpled blue cheese
1/2 c. glazed walnuts or pecans

Put the salad together. In a separate bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients. Toss the dressing with the salad and serve immediately.

Do your kids really like these kinds of salads? I have three kids- about the same age as yours and I LOVE LOVE LOVE salads like this, but they usually just pick out the meat, and maybe the tomatoes (depending on the kid) is that the way your kids are too? or are they just all GREAT eaters?
